Provides the nutrient betaine (trimethylglycine, TMG), which enhances SAMe for healthy mood; provides crucial methyl for DNA, brain neurotransmitters, melatonin and myelin production; and helps cells regulate their water content.
Betaine TMG Pairs with SAMe for Enhanced Mood Benefits
Betaine (trimethylglycine, TMG) occurs naturally in our cells. Taking betaine can improve SAMe's mood benefits: in a clinical trial, subjects who received SAMe (750 mg/day) plus betaine (375 mg/day) performed better than SAMe alone (800 mg/day) on measures of worry, helplessness and worthlessness, agitation, and physical efficiency.
Supports Healthy Homocysteine Metabolism
Making SAMe generates homocysteine, which can have toxic effects. Betaine readily provides methyl needed to recycle homocysteine. Betaine bypasses enzyme systems that get methyl from folate and vitamin B12 but are vulnerable to inherited gene errors. Many individuals who are unable to achieve healthy homocysteine regulation by taking folate and vitamin B12 experience success by taking betaine.
Important Molecular Tool for Regulating Cell Water Content
Regulation of water content is a survival issue for all human cells. With too little water they shrink and their enzymes can't work; with too much, they swell and can rupture. They use betaine to sensitively regulate their water content.

Betaine or trimethylglycine (TMG) is a small molecule that’s integral to human metabolism. We get betaine from beets (hence its name), spinach, and a few other foods. It’s clinically proven to help the brain, liver, and other organs. It also helps conserve the body’s antioxidant defenses and is a potent means for controlling potentially toxic homocysteine.
